Here’s a table showing the number of bus drivers who have resigned, been hired, taken and/or returned from a leave of absence since the 4-1 vote to eliminate buses for general education students on July 15, 2013.
Net loss: 14 bus drivers.
Buses have returned, but Hoover City Schools put out a bid to find a third party to recruit and hire bus drivers through the end of the current school year.
Wonder why the bus drivers aren’t coming back.
Wonder why Hoover City Schools needs a third party to find bus drivers.
Hoover City Schools pays a Transportation Director (Coordinator of Pupil Transportation) more than $85,000 a year. In addition, there is a fully-staffed Human Resources department complete with Human Resources Director.
Why is a third party needed when the district already employs nearly half a million dollars worth of employees who should be able to recruit and hire bus drivers?
